I was reminded this week that we sometimes need to look back to recognise how far we have come. Yet there are times when progress is slow. There are occasions when you look back and realise that you have not come as far as you hoped. You worked hard. You were focused. You have given your all. You are exhausted. Yet relatively little has been achieved.
Don’t despair. It doesn’t necessarily mean that you have been doing it wrong. It sometimes means that you have done it right.
‘Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin….’
